This is a very desirable bullet board showing the iconic "Double W" pattern of cartridges. A gold painted border is mounted around the green board which measures approximately 49 inches by 31 1/2 inches and a wood frame outside that. The board displays a dark green background, red and white lettering and vignettes of a duck, bear hunting scene, and a moose bust (see photograph). The display consists of various cartridges and shotgun shells and nine containers of primers, each described below in white lettering. The back of the board has the tag, "PRESENTED wITH COMPLIMENTS OF THE WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS Co. PLEASE HANG IN A PROMINENT PLACE." Also below in lower center, "No. 2062".

Rating Definition:

Very fine overall. The frame has an attractive age darkened appearance with some small dings. There are a couple separated age cracks in the gold border with a professionally repaired chip visible in the top left corner. The board retains its whole host of cartridges all of which show an attractive aged patina. Several of the lower shotgun shells have been reattached with wire. The colors on the board and images show a slight aged color, but remain vibrant. Overall a desirable Winchester bullet board which are becoming increasingly collectable. A must have for the serious Winchester collector!
